Cellular Magnetic Sensitivity

Can anyone supply me with references pertaining to sensitivity to 
Magnetic fields (static or oscillating) by animal cells?

Also any confirming reports of animal sensitivity to magnetic 
fields, earthquakes, epileptic attacks and so forth?

Has anyone proposed any models for how magnetic field variations 
can be sensed at the cellular level?

Have any cell membrane structures been found in the past that 
might serve as part of a receptor mechanism?

Are there any traces of metallic crystals in cell membranes?

Do humans have a magnetic sense and has the locus of this sense 
been found within the brain?

Any help would be gratefully received.
